Can I apply for anticipatory bail in a case under sec 138 & 142
I am a ex banker and has given blank promissory note and blank cheque to a friend of mine who wanted to raise one lakh for his business.My friend is uneducated and is roadside hawker.Latter I moved to a different city and now after 7yrs he has file a case against me under sec 138 & 142 of NI act claiming that I have taken 6.5 lakh from him at 24%pa interest.His brother has secured a job in district court of Visakhapatnam and trying to trouble me.I just wanted to check what are the ways that I can get a fair trail as his brother is a closely associated with the Judge when this case was put.He has claimed 10lakh on that cheque.
1.He is a street hawker and has no source of income and claims to have given me Rs.6.5lakh.He says he has given at 24%pa interest and as per Andhra Pradesh money lenders act cannot give at more interest then 24%pa but he is not a registered money lender
2.He neither has any proof of giving me that amount as I never travelled to Visakhapatnam as I was busy attending my job in Hyderabad
3.I have given him lots of money summing up to 2.3lakh through wired transfers.
What can be done in this situation....do you advice that I need to attend court for hearing after taking anticipatory bail...?Iam little worried as they are influencing the judiciary with his brothers employment there.
